    Hello! Our staffing agency is located in NJ and we place people in NY.  Their checks come from our agency.  Are they responsible for NY and NJ taxes?  What about remote workers that live and "work" in NY under our NJ based agency?

    Hi Jessica. This is best directed to your legal counsel or your payroll support (ATS provider or third party) company. I know that generally state taxes are based on where the work is being performed (client location). With some states, however, there are reciprocal agreements that need to be followed. I also know that there have been a number of changes made to taxation (guidance due to COVID) that have temporarily changed some of the rules and requirements. Finally, remote work arrangements have complicated this issue even further.

    So you can see that this is complicated and requires professional guidance.

    Hi Jessica, I have contract workers in 4 states and we take taxes out on the physical location that the work is preformed! It does get complicated in different states, so I recommend having your payroll department or your accountant advise you in the right direction!

    Here is a great article that sums it up very well!
